more useful coming out of the neuroscience in the near term. in the long term, maybe we can get to the point where we make individualized decision-making, but so far it hasn't actually panned out. >> to all of you, do you think that it would be appropriate to keep this out of the courtroom, for instance, until there is a lot more certainty, or should we be using it now and run the risk that we're reaching potentially wrong conclusions? >> i'll jump in first on that and say it's already here. so the idea that we should wait for the science to get better, i think, is just, it's too late for that. so the cat is already out of the bag. the question is what do you do now that it's in the courtroom. well, we have dualing experts. we have judges sitting in a gate keeping role who have to decide whether or not the evidence should be admissible and whether it should be permitted in a case. my view is that the more evidence that we can provide to a scrr or to a judge -- jury or to a judge in their decision makings, some objective evidence, some evidence to bolster things like a diagnosis of schi

neuroscience. then we will go to ask questions of all the different members. [applause] >> thank you very much for that kind introduction, for the invitation. i am a narrow scientists. i studied your -- i am a new row scientist. i study your brain. what neuroscience might have to offer in terms of understanding individuals to buy a different personality disorders are problems or mental illness. your first client that you are studying is named brad. he has a normal iq, he has been divorced and remarried. he has no history of psychiatric illness. oddly, has worked as a correctional officer for a while. he has worked as a schoolteacher. 16 years ago, he hit his head and knocked himself unconscious. no kind of neurological events following that. for the last year, he has had some migraines. he started using pornography on the internet. he started soliciting sex from women working in massage parlors. he reports that he has a very high sex drive and conceals his behavior because he feels that it is wrong. there is a picture. [laughter] in 2010, he makes some subtle sexual advances to his stepda

nonagents of responsibility. neuroscience could change that. once we understand and have a better understanding of human behavior and we recognize that there is a much finer graduation that we can draw than this bright line, perhaps it will shift the line or start over. it's not all that consistent, inconsistent with the way to do things. >> i think it is inconsistent, so if you want an open debate, we have to open the debate. >> i would like to jump in at some point. >> go ahead. >> we have the two distributions. we have one distribution based on "free will or volitional control" which applies on the civil side and used to apply under the a.l.i. test and now we have a new distribution of being able to distinguish right from wrong. so now we have two completely different distributions that we're drawing that bright line on. >> competent versus volitional. we can decide that cognitive isn't sufficient, but it is the basis where we draw the line. sorry. >> ok. so to get back to the science, do you see how the research that you're doing and this imaging and identification of areas in

? [applause] >> so what i showed you today was to give you that exact what is neuroscience doing in the legal is system and so that person of the person with the tumor, you could all see that and so can a radiologist. but the else that we do know of those images. no radiologist can just see by looking at them. we are so sensitive to individual differences in i.q., in age, in all of these different availables, psychopathy scores, whatever it is, we can develop beautiful pictures of these things. so the question is, how is the legal system going to deal with all of these different, you know, images and other types of things that we can now tell you about your brain and how is that going to change things? so i tend to view, you know, individuals who have brain differences for whatever reason worthy of developing better treatments for them that can help to remediate those problems. as psychologists, we study abnormal behavior. anita shows distribution, most of us in here. you get anybody out here who is externalizing or anyone out here who is internalizing, as a psychologist, we try to brin

take a gun and fire it, or are you not? it turns out neuroscience helps us answer that question somewhat in that there are a number of studies that try to look at the flexibility of actions. and it finds that you maintain significant flexibility of actions up until the moment you make a choice, a choice to act. we can actually see actions in the brain. we can see you deciding and choosing between actions in the brain. we can see the flexibility of choice that you maintain. now this difference between law and theory as to freedom of action versus freedom of choice, i think it it actually is quite compatible across both if we simply separate what it is we're talking about, a difference between your preferences and desires over which you may not have control versus action choices and in law, we punish you for bad actions, not for bad preferences and desires. so then the question is, how do we take account for preferences and desires that may be outside of your control? that may be things like gray matter lighten kent showed us that showed us that people like psychopaths have decrea

draw these clues from many different areas of neuroscience, including artificial intelligence. you come up with this thesis. and i could make a strong case that this is really how the neocortex must work. it must be the kind of things that i guess traded. like the ability to think in hierarchies. >> so when we sort of build this sort of model, the human brain which i am gathering can take many forms, whose brain is it? is it my brain, a template brain-dead kids educated differently? >> it's a simulated rain. to create my brand your brain, it's much further out in terms of difficulty, and it is -- what's really most useful is to create intelligence that we can then train. but just his education is vital. and i don't just mean formal schooling, but from the moment the child is born, even before that the child is learning. his or her parents and the environment. that's a vital part of education, and we have to do the same thing for our a night. we have an equivalent of that, speech recognition, and the educated by exposing them to examples of real-world speech and annotated. educated

we have enough cues from neuroscience and the latest scanning research and attempts to stimulate the brain from artificial intelligence which tells us which techniques work, it gives us possible theories how the brain could do it. thought experiments, we can investigate our own brains by using it as a laboratory, simple ones like the alphabet, say it back words but you can't -- that demonstrates one simple thing which is our memories are organized in a forward fashion. the human brain is organized in a forward fashion and has no means of reversing it. the only way you can do that is learn the backwards alphabet. i have a whole bunch of thought experiments like that that give you clues or cues as to how the brain works. >> host: is the common -- very different pieces of evidence from different places. >> guest: the reverse engineering project is like that. not like one project like the blue brain project stimulating the brain and reverse engineering it. there are many different approaches and people studying individual neurons or seeing where things happen, some people are doing resea

theater, then the news surfaces that the suspect is a former grad student with the neuroscience program at the university of colorado. eventually, someone with the program sends an e-mail letting students know therapists will be available and warning if they are approached by the media to refer all calls to a spokeswoman. the e-mail ends with a request. in the meantime, i requesting -- and this person skipped a word there -- that you, please, not post anything on facebook, twitter, etc. holmes has two hearings scheduled next week for monday and thursday, but in january is when a big turn in this case happens. that's when holmes faces the newly-elected district attorney, george brockler, he's the man who decides whether to pursue the death penalty. he said during the election he favors capital punishment, but when it comes to any specific case, brockler says this. >> as someone who's been elected to take over this office and is ultimately going to have that legal and i'd say moral responsibility to make the appropriate decision in seeking justice in this case, it would be inappropriate enti
